Notes:

Congregation founded 1793.
The pediment originally carried an ancient Greek script, which translated to: "To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ.” This was removed as the building was sometimes confused with a synagogue.
Over the years, the church has had a habit of calling itself different things to reflect changing attitudes. In 1898, in the annual report, called itself a Free Christian Church. Prior to that, it had called itself Unsectarian. In 1901 it was called the Free Christian Church (Christ Church); by 1922, it became a Free Christian Church (Unitarian); in 1932 the name Christ Church (Unitarian) became generally used. Since the Second World War it has become known simply as Brighton Unitarian Church.
